Essential Kia Technology for Parents | Evansville Kia
Not every vehicle is the same — nor is the tech that comes with it. Here in Evansville, Indiana, your family needs a vehicle that has the tools you need to stay safe and connected. Kia has technology that parents like you need, especially these useful features.
Connectivity is one way that Kia keeps families engaged. The automaker offers the UVO link app to manage many useful features and actions from inside the vehicle. With UVO link, you can call and text using voice commands and even pull up your favorite music while keeping yours hands on the steering wheel.
If you use Amazon Alexa or Google Home services in your house, you can even connect them to your Kia’s UVO link. This functionality is available on Kia models like the Sorento and the Sportage dating back to 2014, so you can even find it on used Kia SUVs here at Evansville Kia.
Monitor your surroundings
Backing out of the garage or in crowded parking lots is safer with Kia’s Surround View Monitor. Better than a basic backup camera, it utilizes four cameras to provide you with a 360-degree view of your surroundings.
Children are safer exiting your car with Kia’s Safe Exit Assist. This feature notifies your crew of oncoming traffic that’s passing by as they make quick dashes to the soccer field or band rehearsal. Plus, Safe Exit Assist comes with Power Rear Child-Safety Door Locks to ensure kids don’t open the door accidently.
Back seat squabbles might be hard to control, but features like Driver Attention Warning and Rear Occupant Alert in new Kia SUVs can help keep everyone safe. For example, if the 2021 Kia Sportage notices a lack of some driver inputs, it will assume the driver is distracted and alert them to keep their eyes on the road. If the 2021 Kia Sorento registers passengers in the back of the SUV when it’s parked, it will visually and audibly remind you to check the vehicle before fully exiting.
You’ll find a variety of safe models for your family here at Evansville Kia, including the Sorento SUV and Sportage SUV. Browse our inventory now to find your next tech-loaded SUV.
